HUNGER ACTION MONTH
There are lots of ways to fight hunger in your community. Here are three specific ways to partner with COM in September.
COM is partnering with local restaurants to hold a "Food Fight" competition. During Hunger Action Week (Sept. 18-24), local restaurants will be offering a variety of promotions to raise money for COM's food pantry. The restaurant that raises the most money will be crowned the "Food Fight Champion." So, let's "Eat Out to Help Out!"
Grab a ticket for to watch local talent compete in a game show to be named the Most Talented Act in Polk County. A great evening of entertainment, this event caps off Hunger Action Week as COM's major annual fundraiser. Purchase tickets for just $10 or learn more here.
Starting on Monday and concluding at Polk County's Got Talent, our Hunger Action Silent Auction has lots of great items and experiences for everyone. Not only do you have a chance to snag some great prizes, but every bid goes toward helping out our food pantry. Auction wraps up Saturday night and winner will be announced at the end of PCGT (you do not have to be present to win). Find the auction and start your bidding HERE.
Friday, Sept. 23, 2022 is Hunger Action Day, or as we like to also call it, "Go Orange Day." This is a day to wear orange to show your support for COM and the fight against hunger. Hunger Action Day is also a great day to volunteer in the food pantry. Check out pics from last year:
